Schulte recently introduced their VTX‐300 and VTX‐420 SOILPRO, an all‐in‐one tillage machine. The SOILPRO can do it all, from a light to an extreme tillage pass with aggressive concave discs, to a vertical tillage pass or seedbed preparation with straight discs, and everything in between.
The SOILPRO’s disc unit is the heart of the machine. It has an adjustable disc angle from 0° to 22°, along with the weight of 1,150 lbs/ft. to handle any type of crop residue or ground condition.
The disc angle is adjusted hydraulically on-the-go from the tractor cab. This adjustable disc angle allows for aggressive primary tillage with concave discs all the way to true vertical tillage with straight discs. It can operate in the heaviest and toughest residue conditions or it can do a light seedbed preparation pass.
The SOILPRO is the ideal machine for both vertical tillage and residue management. 24” low concavity wavy discs are used for more aggressive tillage, while the 22” straight 13 wave discs are used for vertical tillage. To accomplish ideal field finish both above and below the soil surface, the disc spacing is adjusted when working in vertical tillage or residue management mode. Adjustment is made simple by sliding the rear disc gang between stops.
